I Voted For John Edwards Today!

Ocharma, Billary...

brought to you by the Mainstream Media.

Howdya like it?

I don't.

I refuse to allow corporate, media whores to decide who I'll vote for.

That's only ONE of many reasons I proudly cast my vote for John Edwards today.

Hillary AND Obama are Republicans but most are too stupid to even notice.

Hey Mary: Meet my blog persona, KELSO!

Like you I was a Kucinich supporter. Unlike you, I didn't care for Edwards. You are absolutely right that HRC and Obama are Republicans, but HRC is a female Eisenhower and Obama is a dumber Volstead. I'm for Clinton. That doesn't make me a bad person with you, I'm sure. Apparently, that's not an accepted point of view on Nova-M.

What I do with my vote as you know is all irrelevant. I'll not be a USA citizen much longer. I haven't been a resident for a while.

I'm probably going to pick up this particular point on my blog tonight or tomorrow but George Packer in the NEW YORKER refers to Obama as some sort of "RFK" figure. I think the comparison is apt in the sense that RFK was a sadistic right-wing son of a bitch as an aide to McCarthy during the HUAC hearing and as Attorney General during the JFK administration.

Johnson's attorney general, Ramsey Clark, was a professional who was about 2/3 Kucinich and 1/3 Clinton.

I'm sorry RFK got assassinated and all and he would have been way better than Nixon was, but he, like Obama, was no one to be reassured by, believe.

Your friend,

I have been a strong John Edwards supporter since 2004. But, sadly, he is gone from our political choices, at least, in 2008.

Between Obama and Hillary, I find Hillary a much stronger, realistic candidate for our country.

Below is an excerpt from Jake Tapper, ABCNews, which reflects my worries about the Democratic contest:

UPDATE: Let me be clear: I'm not saying there shouldn't be enthusiasm in politics. I'm merely touching on the fact that some Obama supporters' exhuberance seems to be getting a little out of hand. Obama himself joked about this at a Hollywood fundraiser, as noted in Men's Vogue:

“When Morgan Freeman comes over to greet Obama, the senator begins bowing down both hands in worship. ‘This guy was president before I was,’ says Obama, referring to Freeman's turn in Deep Impact and, clearly, getting a little ahead of his own bio. Next, a nod to Bruce Almighty: ‘This guy was God before I was.’”
